WHAT ARE SALT AND PEPPER DIAMONDS?
For many years salt and pepper diamonds have been seen as undesirable, but more recently are gaining popularity due to them being a more budget-friendly alternative as well as for their unique colors and characteristics. Salt and pepper diamonds include many different types of flaws which makes them extremely unique! These flaws can include graining, bearding, clouding, cracks and inclusions, pinpoints, wisps, and even other crystals growing inside the gem. The color itself can also vary greatly - anywhere from it being extremely dark and almost black in appearance, to gray and icy in color.
Please note that neither the unique characteristics nor the color of particular stones can be controlled and we do not offer free stone replacements due to the aesthetic and natural variation that will occur.
Because salt and pepper diamonds can be difficult to source, please be aware that we cannot guarantee an exact ship date and it may take longer than our standard 8 week production time. If you are on a time constraint and would like to confirm shipping dates prior to purchasing please send us an email!
**Please note that because we use natural materials in our rings (such as wood, antler, etc.) there WILL be variation in how the color and grain of the materials in your ring turn out. No two rings will look the same!**
Because many of our rings have natural materials in them (such as wood, antler, etc.) they do require more care than a traditional solid gold wedding band. We recommend you remove your ring for:
- Any water exposure (including handwashing) - Using household chemicals, hand sanitizer, or any other harsh chemicals - Any manual labor - Anything that might incur impact damage such as hitting your ring on hard surfaces or dropping it
- Remove your ring for any manual labor (especially anything that includes gripping items tightly such as furniture, free weights, etc.) - Remove your ring when using cosmetics, household chemicals, hand sanitizer, or any other harsh chemicals

We offer a free ring sizing kit at the time of purchasing a ring, which ensures you receive one free resize as long as the ring is returned within 30 days of receiving it! If you did not use our free ring sizer, or are reaching out after the 30 days, please contact us and we’d love to help you get your sizing figured out!
Because we know many people want to keep some aspect of their proposal a surprise we offer one free lifetime resize on all women's engagement rings, regardless of the free sizing kit being used, so that you don't have to ask for her ring size and give away the fact that you're ordering the ring soon. If a ring tracer or ring guard was bought at the same time as the engagement ring, you will also receive one free resize for those as well.
*Free engagement ring resize is only valid for rings bought on or after January 3rd, 2022*
If ordering in TUNGSTEN or CERAMIC please note those are comfort fit bands and you must be sized appropriately. The rest of our rings are standard fit.

I was so eager and excited to receive my ring and I have to say, I was nothing short of ecstatic when I opened it. Not only is the packaging and everything else adorable, the ring is absolutely stunning and the pictures on the website do not even compare to how beautiful it is in person. I literally can’t stop looking at it and I never want to take it off. I get compliments from everyone and I am just so glad that I made the leap and purchased this ring. I’d give it ten stars if I could.
